Common issues for households that have invested in solar panels are the following:
A problem experienced for many occurs in charging new hybrid and electric vehicles; the main fuse breaks even when the fuse has been exchanged for a larger one and the charging power has been reduced to protect the fuse.
With the Nilar home battery and Ferroamp EnergyHub, you can increase your solar utilization and reduce the load on your main fuse. You will expand the financial benefit while future-proofing the property for changes in electricity prices and network tariffs. Ultimately, you can maximize the benefits you receive from your solar cell investment.
Using the full capacity of self-produced solar electricity is a bigger challenge than many assume. In typical households, the most electricity is consumed in the morning and evening hours while solar energy is produced midday. Surplus self-produced electricity can be sold back to the electricity grid, but at a lower price than the electricity company provides. Then, in the evening, electricity will need to be purchased back from the grid, available at a higher price. If nothing is done, the household will continue to be dependent on the already congested electricity grid, despite producing electricity with the help of the sun.
Put simply, the electrical grid is generally overloaded because there are certain periods of the day and of the year where many people are utilizing a lot of electricity at the same time. As more and more people purchase electric vehicles, the load on the grid becomes even greater. After a standard workday, you return home and charge the car, cook a meal, run the dishwasher, and possibly do some laundry. This significant increase of your household’s electricity use occurs at the same time the load on the electricity grid is already high. Many consumers have already switched to a larger main fuse to avoid altering other internal wiring and changing plugs.
When a larger main fuse is used, your electricity company has to reserve a larger capacity in the network to accommodate it, so your monthly costs increase. When multiple people switch to a larger main fuse, this necessitates an expansion of the electricity network infrastructure, which, in turn, results in even higher future electricity network costs. Ultimately, these costs mean rising monthly electricity bills in the future.
If you install a solution that can store your solar energy and control its usage, such as a safe home battery and a smart energy hub, it will lead to your electricity supply being more sustainable in the long term. You can also avoid switching your main fuse and optimally charge your electric vehicle at the same time. Choose the safe and environmentally friendly home battery from Nilar and the smart EnergyHub from Ferroamp to maximize the benefits of your solar cells!
The Ferroamp EnergyHub allows intelligent and flexible control of your self-produced electricity through storage in the Nilar Home Box battery. With this system, you gain access to the unique and patented phase balancing function called phase balancing. It evenly distributes electricity between the fuses so that you don’t have to change plugs nor increase the main fuse size for your property. Phase balancing also means that you charge an electric vehicle in the shortest time possible, regardless of time of day. You can do all of this with Ferroamp’s cloud-based energy measurement system, watching it happen in real time.
With Nilar’s Homebox, you get an energy storage solution that has unique safety and environmental benefits. The Nilar Home Box battery design is based on the patented Nilar Hydride® technology. The batteries contain a water-based and non-flammable electrolyte, providing a safety advantage when compared to other energy storage technologies. The Nilar Home Box is also manufactured in our state-of-the-art production facility powered 100% by renewable energy in Sweden and the Nilar battery is designed to last for more than 20 years. With the Nilar Home Box and Ferroamp’s smart EnergyHub, you choose cutting-edge technology developed and produced in Sweden. It is the most sustainable and environmentally friendly technology available on the market that secures the future of your home against a growing shortage of electricity and increases in both network costs and electricity prices in today’s already overloaded grid.
The Swedish government is currently offering an Energy Storage subsidy that provides you a unique opportunity to integrate a home battery in your facility. The subsidies can contribute 60% of the capital costs, up to 50,000 SEK. Your application must be approved no later than December 31st; apply now to get approval and take advantage of the savings.
Apply for the Energy Storage subsidy and have your application approved as soon as possible to maximize your subsidy benefits. Contact the knowledgeable sales representatives at one of our partners for help with installation. They can provide your electrician with training and installation support.
To maximize the value of your solar cell investment, apply for the Energy Storage as soon as possible to add the Home Box and EnergyHub. It is currently possible to take advantage of the state support of 60% of the energy storage capital costs, up to 50,000 SEK.
To take advantage of the available 2020 subsidies in Sweden, you must submit an application and have it approved prior to the 31st of December. After that, installation must be completed before June 30, 2021 in order to receive the investment support. There is also state support available for the installation of solar cells, which will be the Green Deduction enforced after January 1, 2021.
